An independent escort has three alternatives of scheduling appointments with her clients. There are probably other, non-efficient methods but I have used and am using a combination of these 3.
Private message (PM)
The great thing about using the phone to book a date is its real time. A client sees your advertisement, reads your number, plugs it into his phone and you are there to schedule with him right away. 95% of the time a client calls for same day/within the hour appointment. And these same guys prefer to contact a lady by phone instead of having to send out an email and check every 15 minutes for a response (not everyone has a blackberry).
This is when you get to use your intuition. Listen to a client’s voice and background sounds. If he sounds drunk or out of it drugged up, do not schedule the call. Listen to the background noise for other people. I had guys call me to book an outcall (going to their place) and found out there was more than 1 guy there. You do not want to end up alone at a stranger’s house with more than 1 guy. I tell guys right away, “I don’t do group jobs” and hang up the phone. Put two, three, or more guys together and they get the gang-bang mentality. It can get out of control fast because no one takes responsibility.
Be prepared to turn off your phone at night! There are always drunks and druggies looking for a cheap fuck at 3 in the morning. About 50% of all callers are time wasters, jerk-offs, and no shows (it comes with the territory ladies). Be very succinct, firm and don’t let them play games with you. Many of the guys who schedule with me say, “You are really different in person. You sound so to the point on the phone, but you are actually friendly.” I just tell them I have to be.
If you are going to use this method - PLEASE get a separate phone. Do not use your personal phone! Even better, get yourself a prepaid phone. Put $75 on it and it should last 2 - 3 months. A prepaid phone cannot be traced to you, even by the coppers. Just do not register the phone account online - there is an option for this to check your account balance. I do it old school - phone in and check my balance.
Great if you are going to use your personal phone to confirm the ‘date’. You need to have frequent internet access to check your inbox. This method allows you to feel out a client through a number of back-and-forth email exchanges. I used to send out a little questionnaire to all my prospective clients. What would I ask? LOL Very pointless questions really, such as - What do you like to read? What are your hobbies? Do you have a favorite movie? Have you traveled the world? If you could go any where in the world, where would it be?
Those questions would tell me little about how the client would treat me during the appointment. But I wanted to test their ‘patience’, to see if they would even bother answering all of my questions and if they would be interested in asking me questions in return. Most guys ask the exact same question so have all the answers pre-typed so you can copy/paste an answer in return ;)
What concerns me when I use email is IP address tracking. If you have a static IP address then it’s easy for the cops to get a hold of it and trace your location. A way to bypass this problem is using proxy servers. I do not use this technology but can recommend a really great company for those who do not want to risk a thing - Private Proxy - it is $10/month or $25/3 months. It works and lets you hide your IP address.
Most men who contact me through email book an appointment and do not end up time wasters. Do not give into demands - such as emailing more photos. Preferably do not give out your location (your incall address) to a prospective client in email form. And be conscious of what you write to someone in an email. Guys can save emails and then send them to other guys.
This form of communication can only be done on an escort review board. These days escort review boards can be found on the internet for most locations worldwide. Here are several examples:
Registering on the board is a must if you want to advertise and receive private messages (PMs) from prospective clients. Frequent internet access is a must if you want to schedule appointments. This method is similar to email but it also allows you to research some of the reviews/posts done by the men contacting you. A large majority of the guys do not make posts/reviews, so you can ask them questions to feel them out. Always rely on your gut instinct!
To sum this up I would recommend using all 3 methods. The more access you give the more appointments you schedule ;)
